Senvion will deliver the offshore turbines for Trianel Windpark Borkum II. The project shall consist of 32 turbines from the Senvion 6.XM series.

Senvion and Trianel Windkraftwerk Borkum II GmbH & Co KG signed the conditional contract for the turbine delivery as well as service for the wind farm Trianel Borkum II (TWB II) at the Hamburg WindEnergy.

The wind farm Trianel Borkum II is planned to be installed 45 kilometers north of the island Borkum in the German North Sea, close to the wind farm alpha ventus, which started operations in 2009 and is equipped with six 5M 126 Senvion offshore turbines. The 32 Senvion 6.2M152 turbines for TWB II will be installed in a water depth of 25 to 35 meters. After the planned completion in autumn 2019, the offshore wind farm will have an installed capacity of approximately 203 MW.

Jürgen Geissinger, CEO of Senvion, says: "We appreciate the confidence that the project-consortium Trianel shows in our turbines. This contract confirms that we are setting standards in the cost-effective generation of offshore wind energy and we will further consolidate our strong position in the offshore wind-energy market with the Senvion 6.2M152."

According to the current schedule the final investment decision for Trianel Wind Farm Borkum II should be taken in the first half of 2017. According to that, the construction could start early 2018. "In the first stage of the Trianel Wind Farm Borkum, we have already laid the essential foundations for the expansion of the municipal offshore engagements. Therefore this project is of high commercial interest for local companies", explains Klaus Horstick, Managing Director of TWB II. Until the investment decision has been taken, further local partners shall be recruited.
